Non-intrusive voice processing for VoIP and 3G networks

Ditech’s Packet Voice Processor (PVP) optimizes and

measures voice quality in real-time, on every phone call, in

both directions for VoIP and 3G networks. PVP non-intrusively detects and eliminates problems from three sources that

degrade voice quality:

Network-induced impairments Impairments from callers’ devices (including Bluetooth devices)

Impairments from callers’ environments

PVP is deployed by conference providers, wireline and mobile carriers, cable operators, managed

service providers, interconnect and peering providers to solve churn and customer satisfaction

problems that result from substandard voice quality:

Conferencing: Conference providers have eliminated acoustic echo on IP bridges, reducing the number of complaints to customer support.

Interconnect: Peering and interconnect providers support multiple codec types without compromising network performance or end-to-end voice quality, meeting or exceeding service

level agreements with partners.

Mobile: Mobile carriers support IP network core and access technologies by mitigating the effect of packet loss on speech quality, accelerating the early adoption of advanced data services.

PVP is available with Ditech’s industry-leading applications:

Dynamic Transcoding

Voice Quality Assurance (VQA)

Experience Intelligence (EXi)

These flexible applications operate simultaneously to optimize voice quality, measure the

actual call experience, and perform transcoding among 10 of the most widely deployed industry-standard codecs.

PVP is available in 6-slot (5RU) and 14-slot (13RU) configurations with scalable support from 1000

to 16000 simultaneous calls per chassis.

Measure, score actual call experience with MOS, R Factor

Dynamic Transcoding to support codec diversity

Mitigate acoustic echo, packet loss, ambient noise

Voice Quality

The Packet Voice Processor (PVP) is available with Ditech’s industry-leading applications; Voice Quality Assurance (VQA) and Experience Intelligence (EXi). These applications can be deployed in different configurations based on the needs of the customer, allowing for maximum flexibility in pinpointing, measuring and solving voice quality problems.

Voice Quality Assurance (VQA)

VQA non-intrusively and automatically detects and eliminates problems that degrade voice quality. The application mitigates network-induced impairments, impairments from the caller’s environment, and impairments from the callers’ devices, in real-time, on both ends of the call simultaneously.

Intelligent Packet Restoration: Intelligent packet restoration is an advanced feature that reconstructs missing packets within a VoIP packet stream. With the capability to analyze and process the received voice packets, intelligent packet restoration uses a predictive speech model to reconstruct a missing packet’s voice payload and rebuild it upon packet play out. This offers an enhanced ability to support high-quality voice over IP, even in congested IP networks with substantial packet delay and loss.

Bidirectional Acoustic Echo Control: Adaptively converges on and cancels linear and nonlinear echoes from handsets and handsfree units arriving with network delays of up to 400 ms in each direction, and up to an industry-leading 15 dB WAEPL ensures protection from even the strongest echo sources, while maintaining excellent double-talk performance, providing maximum clarity for wireless, wireline, and VoIP environments. Automatically generates comfort noise to match actual background noise levels and spectral characteristics, providing improved conversational call quality without an annoying “dead air” effect.

Bidirectional Noise Cancellation: Eliminates background noise during both speech and pauses by up to an industry-leading 21 dB. Advanced multi-band spectral processing techniques dynamically adapt to changes in noise spectrum in real time, providing a dramatic increase in quality for calls placed from noisy environments, and excellent clean speech performance. Spectrally-matched comfort noise can be customized by the operator to provide high or low levels of residual comfort noise in accordance with subscriber preferences. Voice quality enhancement features automatically accommodate for frame erasure in wireless networks to ensure consistent sound quality before and after the loss condition.

Bidirectional Level Control: Automatically adjusts voice volume to a comfortable listening level as determined by the network operator and the listener’s environment. Prevents clipping or codec distortions by automatically attenuating input signal levels that are too high. Raises low-level input signals to a comfortable listening level. Applies gain to output signal level in response to high background noise level in the listener’s environment, automatically increasing volume in loud listening environments.

Enhanced Voice Intelligibility: Improves speech clarity and overall subjective quality by enhancing second-order speech formants commonly attenuated by low bitrate codecs, and dynamically adjusts the degree of spectral enhancement to compensate for the ambient noise characteristics of the listener’s environment and improved speech recognition.

Experience Intelligence (EXi)

EXi non-intrusively measures speech quality in real-time, on every call. Information from EXi about signal, noise, echo and packet loss can be input into the ITU G.107 E Model to compute MOS or R-Factor scores much more accurately than solutions that rely on packet loss and delay statistics alone. In addition, EXi statistics can be used directly in pre-configured reports, or integrated with existing network test and measurement systems.

Transmission Rating Factor, Mean Opinion Score: Per-call listening and conversational R Factor and MOS values are computed continuously and non-intrusively based on measured speech, noise, echo, and codec type. EXi’s objective scores follow the ITU-T G.107 E-Model standard and use a unique DSP-based approach to analyze live voice streams.

Noise and Speech Level: An increasing number of calls originate from noisy urban environments where call quality can be negatively affected by background noise. EXi measures per-call speech level, noise level, and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in both directions to identify and report unwanted noise.

Echo And Delay: Transporting voice over IP networks usually results in greater and more variable latency than TDM. In addition, the proliferation of user choices in terminal equipment (handsets, headsets, PC-based softphones, and speakerphones) continues to expand rapidly, often without providing adequate acoustic isolation, exposing more users to acoustic echo. EXi monitors from 0 to 400 ms in both directions, ensuring complete and accurate measurement of echo.

Packet and Network Impairments: In VoIP networks, packet characteristics can have a significant impact on call quality. Ditech collects packet loss, discard and jitter information on an ongoing, per-call basis to quickly identify the source of IP issues that are impacting voice quality.
